Hoover Wagon During the Great Depression, many rural automobile owners could not afford gasoline. These resourceful folks just hitched up their horses to their vehicles. The unusual vehicles were derisively called Hoover Wagons after president Herbert Hoover, who was America's chief executive when the Great Depression began.

Star-Spangled Banner Becomes US National Anthem - 1931 On November 3, 1929, Robert Ripley drew a panel in his syndicated cartoon, Ripley's Believe it or Not!, saying "Believe It or Not, America has no national anthem". This news startled a great many people who thought The Star-Spangled Banner, written as a poem by Francis Scott Key, had long been America's official national anthem. It hadn't. For years, Hail Columbia had served that purpose on official government occasions. My Country 'Tis of Thee was also frequently used. In 1931, John Philip Sousa published his opinion in favor of the Star-Spangled Banner, stating "...it is the spirit of the music that inspires" as much as it is Key’s "soul-stirring" words. By a law signed on March 3, 1931 by President Herbert Hoover, The Star-Spangled Banner was finally adopted as the national anthem of the United States.

Bad News Bears - Sitcom Flop 1979 Successful movies don't often spawn successful TV series. Take the Bad News Bears, for instance. In the television version, Jack Warden portrayed former minor-leaguer Morris Buttermaker, the coach of the Hoover Junior High Bears, a sorry bunch of youthful misfits and bumblers. Catherine Hicks played Hoover Junior High principal Dr. Emily Rappant. Phillip Richard Allen played Roy Turner, the coach of the dreaded rival Lions. Corey Feldman, Billy Jayne (then credited as Billy Jacoby) and Meeno Peluce were cast amongst the team's players, and Tricia Cast played Amanda Wurlitzer, the Bears' star pitcher. Poor writing and subpar acting doomed this series. Three episodes into the series' second season, CBS cancelled The Bad News Bears due to low ratings. A few previously unaired episodes were shown during the summer of 1980.

Herbert Hoover Cartoon Herbert Hoover was a brilliant orgtanizer of relief supplies for Europe during and after the First World War. Unfortunately for him, he is mostly remembered as the man who was president of the United States when the stock market crashed in 1929. The resulting Great Depression crippled the economy. Hoover's administration largely chose to wait things out, believing that the economic downturn would be short, and that government intervention was not necessary. He famously predicted in 1932 that, "Prosperity is just around the corner." Of course many grim years followed and it took pretty much until the end of the 1930s for the United States and the rest of the world to extricate itself from the Great Depression. This political cartoon (from 2005!) lampoons Hoover's unwarranted optimism.
